Katy Perry is a lovesick robot scorned in a new music video with Grammy-winning hitmaker Zedd.

The musicians unveiled their new collaboration, “365,” Thursday, along with an accompanying video starring Perry, 34, as a dolled-up, sexy robot.

In the clip, Zedd appears to be taking part in a study, and his mind wanders to the International A.I. + Robotics Center in Switzerland when he’s tasked with defining “love.”

There, the robot Perry is being assembled by a team of scientists, who dress her like a ‘50s housewife, complete with a checkered dress and blonde bob.

Soon, she and Zedd, 29, are living together in an attempt to humanize her as much as possible — and she’s absolutely smitten.

Unfortunately, he doesn’t exactly feel the same way — though that doesn’t stop Perry from becoming completely obsessed with him, to disastrous results.

The track, which was co-written by the stars and produced by Zedd, was teased by both artists on social media before its early morning release.

“Valentine’s Day is going to be extra obsessive this year,” Perry wrote.

It’s Perry’s first collaboration with Zedd, who has teamed up with stars like Alessia Cara, Selena Gomez and Maren Morris in the past.

“I was really excited for Zedd to join my WITNESS: The Tour last year, and in our downtime, we started Viking on music, which led to this special song,” Perry said in a statement. “Happy to collaborate with such a talented and down-to-earth human being.”

Zedd’s track “The Middle” with Morris was nominated for three Grammy Awards last weekend, including record of the year.

Perry played a role in the Grammys this year, too, joining Morris, Kacey Musgraves and Little Big Town in honoring Dolly Parton.
